Why Orientation?

WSU requires undergraduate orientation for domestic incoming freshmen, transfer students and returning or transferring adult learners. New student orientation is the last step of your transition into a full-fledged member of Shocker Nation and one that's directly connected to student success.

At orientation, our Transition Mentors will walk you through the enrollment process, introduce you to campus life and help you prepare for your first day of classes. We'll also have lots of fun!
